A regular customer order for her kids for Children's Day.
7 sweet pinky customised pencil cases. All of similar style, yet not exactly the same.
Hanhan loves the "bambi deer (pink)" fabric, she kept asking were the pouches for her. When I told her that the name shown on the pouches are not hers, so it's not hers, she actually obligated to change her name, so that she can have the pouch :P
And one for a boy. Love this Kokka fabric even though I still use lots of pink girlish fabric :)
After much sewing for others, I onced again feel like sewing for Hanhan. She has been asking me to sew skirt and dresses for her, but I have been busy then.
Hanhan is allowed to wear party clothes to school for Children's Day celebrate, so I sewed this for her, hoping that she can wear it to school...... but she didn't. She had her mind set on wearing her Raspberry Torte t-shirt to school, she had told me that the day before. I sewed through the night thinking that she might change her mind, since the fabric was picked by her and it's a new dress for her but I was wrong :P
When I try to persuade her to wear it, she told me she will wear the dress to the zoo, it's a zoo dress. We have been putting off our trip to the zoo, and this sound like a threat to me : To the zoo we go or your effort for the dress will be wasted :P
Whether the girl wins her trip to the zoo with the dress on or Mummy wins in coaxing the girl to wear the dress without a trip to the zoo, and get some photos taken. Hm.... we'll see how.
Oh... what do you think about the ribbon infront? Should I remove it to keep it simple?
Dress pattern modified from Cucito Summer 2010. I added some elastic to the botton of the bodice. This is the original pattern.
